you can't get your shoes too dirty hiking at BT - as long as you stick to the stated paths. if not, you'd make a nuisance of yourself "bashing" a new route.

i was chatting with a nparks officer recently, some people actually create BIG havoc when they tread into places especially where young saplings are meant to have time to regrow, away from treading feet. i hope you are not one of these kinds of people.

any shoe will do. you sounded as if you're even afraid of getting a single grain of sand into your shoe.

sunkist - try teva sandals if u are into normal (not the intense) trekking. They are more 'airy' than the ACGs and definitely can last u longer.

Well, first of all you have to know what kind of terrain you are going to cover mostly..... if its off the beaten track or unpaved paths, go for high cut shoes..... otherwise if its for lots of street/paved/city/town type walking, low cuts will do fine.

Lots of brands to choose from.....personally I like Clarks

army gortex the best for me being a enduro biker. My boots been thru all terrain with me...forest, mud, river crossing and trekking!
waterproof, comfortable(imo) and no afraid of dirt because can simply splash water to wash off.
but i still wear Teva locally! :bsmilie:

Hi-tec, yes corny sounding.

light, water proof, cheap.

sports shops, peninsula and wad nots... shoes are korean. If you are walking around singapore, nothing much needed lah, i only get fed up when my socks are wet so waterproofing i prefer.

I think any with Grotex material, not so much of brands, maybe even Adidas or their other brand, Soloman.
